book has been divided into 4 parts:
The first part aims at describing the types of questions and activities which have come out in the various Autonomous Regions, providing some tips and/or theoretical aspects related to them. It serves as a reference for conceptual aspects such as phonetics and phonemic transcription; various types of text analysis including literary, lexical and cohesive devices; communicative functions; essay and summary writing; or some ideas for class use. For those candidates who have translation, this part provides some tips and techniques to bear in mind when approaching translations, so that they sound as natural and idiomatic as possible.
The second part focuses on various types of text analysis and particularly those not covered in our Análisis de Textos. Preguntas, textos y soluciones. It also includes a variety of language exercises often related to the text: cognates, homonyms, phrasal verbs, idiomatic expressions, synonyms, antonyms, classification into hypernyms, definition of words or expressions and some paraphrases. The type of text analysis varies to reflect texts which have appeared in the different Autonomous Regions, including proposals for class use. It consists of 26 texts in total.
The third part is for those -mostly Language School teachers, but also some Secondary school teachers in regions like Madrid- who have translations in their Language Exam.
There are 12 texts in English and 12 in Spanish (24 in total), with a first warm-up activity plus 2 full mock exams, i.e. two texts in each.
Finally, the last part is the suggested answer key, which has been divided into two sections: one for the text analysis and language exercises, the other for the translations. The suggestions for class use provided for three of the texts relate to three didactic units in our Inglés. Programación Didáctica. (Part III: A Sample). The texts have been designed taking into account the feedback provided by former students now holding posts as permanent teachersnin the State Education System both Secondary and Escuelas. Some of the texts actually came out in some Competitive exams.
